    swag, how do you plan on getting around the corporate suits who shut the last CM up?  they didnt like him being honest and open with us, so how do you plan on doing that?

    Easy... keep away info from us, and be dishonest ;) that's what KIX want their CMs to be... it's not CMs fault if they keep us in the dark, but the company's fault...

    Welcome.

    You asked for feedback, so here's some:

    Someone posted this image of the prizes for the Alien Mobilization event happening in less than two days:


    Can we get some -- any at all -- information on new event prizes before an event starts?

    Could it be that these boxes grant instant credits rather than bps? Wouldn't make sense to give polaron ray bps in an event. Then again... #kixeyelogic

    I may start playing again if I could get a vigi credit.

    It's reusable tech, same up/down arrow symbol for resistance armor won in Civil Wars. So there will still be some build time and resource cost required, but you can swap it up to wherever you want if the meta changes later on.

    So then the ship hulls are just the BPs?

    I assumed that the hulls were built hulls, not the BPs for them.

    Welcome SWAG

    Please try to add something to the game that is missing completely

    TRANSPARENCY

    We never know what happened or is going to happen. Even obvious changes are not commented. Just tell us what is planned BEFORE it is implemented, please.


    Absolutely.  Also a lot more warning on everything.  The community pretty much agrees that we all need more of a heads up accross the board.  IMO, this especially includes refit events.  We need a minimum of a 10 day warning for those.  The players all voted and wanted longer calendars, but I haven't seen anything come of this.

    You can start by ditching Supersonic for your advertisement for coins vendor because they suck.  Many occasions of coins not being delivered for watching videos, offers are impossible to complete, incorrect links, use of fraudulent websites, and horrible CS.  Find someone else to manage this if you want this to be a part of VC's future.  Please do not indulge BV please.  Everyone but them knows why.  Although you have already fallen behind on this, please provide information regarding the game in a timely manner.  The refit bonuses need to be known ahead of time as most players that really could use them usually build ships that take several days to complete empty.  We also need info on events in a timely manner and with sufficient data, ie for the alien mobilization mini event we have received minimal info making it difficult to decide the worthiness of the prizes and attempting the event.  If you want to surpass your predecessor you  need to be much better with communicating with your game community.  Some people on the forum are quite needy so I won't blame you for ignoring them, but there certainly needs to be a greater involvement from the CMS on providing information.  Even if there is no information to provide a simple acknowledgement by Kixeye and the CMs would do alot to aleviate the perception that Kixeye and the CMs do not care about its game community.  As of now, your community has very little trust and respect in the CMs and Kixeye.  You will have to work hard to regain that trust and respect.  I really hope you can make this game as good as it should be.

    Absolutely.  On average, I only get coins from watching videos 2/3 of the time, and I'm still missing ~2,000 coins from them.  I submitted a ticket about a week ago and haven't heard a word from them yet.
    Absolutely.  By all means, don't take BV or Mani's word as gospel.  
    With how long build times are, a month's heads up on major events is a must-have.

    In short, I agree with everything in this post.

    We also really need our devs to be available during events.  

    This crap where they start an event and then go on vacation halfway through is BS.  We should have devs active Thursday-Monday, then off on Tuesday/Wednesday.  That way they can address issues when they happen, not try to deal with fallout after its all said and done.

    Hi swag. I coasted through several sectors wow talk about sectors as dead zones! What is kix going to do to fix this disaster of an event? Since you have a second one of these disasters planned for the 21st!

    All the best.. Sorry this happened so soon after your appointment.

    This. I don't think anyone at Kixeye understands how many people are / were on the edge and they just sent them over. Well done.
